For some reason, some of the animals being cared for by ACDC just take a long time to find their forever homes. We truly believe that each animal has a forever family out there and sometimes it just takes longer than others to find that family for each of our animals.
Recently, however, several of those animals that have been with us for a very long time—some more than two years—have found their forever families! Here are the stories of just two of those cats!
Abner: Adopted after 944 days in ACDC’s Foster Care!
Many of you know Abner. He has been in ACDC’s foster care for two and a half years. It’s anybody’s guess why a cat as adorable as Abner took so long to find his forever home. He’s a feisty social butterfly who only had one real drawback….his addiction to cat nip! However, when his new forever mom, Juli, saw Abner, it was love at first sight! “I chose Abner after one look at his picture. That’s all it took for me to fall in love with him and his playful spirit. He definitely is full of spirit and always keeps me entertained. I’m so happy to have him in my life.”
Adopted on January 10, Abner has adjusted to his new home and is as happy as can be. He gets along great with Juli’s 4-year-old son. Recently, Juli wrote, “Thank you so much for bringing us together. I just wanted to let you all know that I am so happy to have him in life. He always makes me laugh and is a blast to have around the house.” Way to go, Abner!!!
Maxine: Adopted after 281 days in ACDC’s Foster Care!
Maxine has been with ACDC since she was a baby. A former feral, she grew into a beautiful young lady while all the while her peers were being adopted as kittens—even her own sister found a home well before adulthood. Maxine did get adopted once but was returned—not because of anything she did wrong, but rather because the cat already living there, did not appreciate her fine qualities. So she sat and waited, and waited, and waited….
Enter her new mommy-to-be Bridget: She saw Maxine’s photo on the internet, read her story, and instantly applied to adopt her. When Bridget met Maxine, she fell in love all over again—it was a slam dunk! We couldn’t be happier for you, Maxine!
